Top 5 NYC Rooftop Bars For Spring/Summer

Tomorrow is finally Spring! And although it may not feel (or look) like it, warmer weather is coming, I promise. So as the weather gets warmer here in New York City, the rooftop bars for Happy Hour once again become the go-to spot for your after-work-drink. Cocktails, sun and fun for Happy Hour is one of my favorite things to do especially after work when i can finally sit back, relax, and throw back some (overpriced) drinks!

So to help you out, I decided to round up my top 5 NYC Rooftop Bars that I will be going to for Happy Hour and brunches as the weather gets warmer. Check ’em out!

Gallow Green

Life By Hill

Gallow Green is a rooftop garden beirgarten type restaurant/bar situated on the roof of The McKittrick Hotel (which you won’t have to walk through) that is located in Chelsea. Gallow Green is one of my favorite spots to go for Happy Hour because it offers an amazingly comfortable, relaxing vibe during those cool summer nights. Gallow Green’s biggest attraction and features are the tons of plush green plants, bushes, shrubs, and flowers that hang and grow throughout the rooftop along with an old rail-line track from The High Line which serves as a walkway through the middle of the rooftop. Not only is the atmosphere very vibrant, but the crowd is young (25-35 y/o), they carry a wide variety of beers and it makes it the perfect place to take a first date (bonus). (Double Bonus- their pizza is the bomb)

Loopy Doopy

Life By Hill

Located right next to Brookefield Place, Loopy Doopy is known for really one thing, their Ice Pops in Prosecco. Their vibrant and fun drinks are wildly popular so if you are looking for that perfect “instagramable” sunset and a awesome drink, this bar is for you. But besides the delicious drinks, Loopy Doopy offers an incredible view over the Hudson River along with a view of the Statue of Liberty and Jersey City’s Business District, which can’t be beat for a happy hour sunset! I will however caution that the place can be a bit overpriced ($25 per drink) but it is certainly a place you go to pay for the experience. Also note that when you go during Happy Hour, make sure that you get there ASAP since the floor space is kind of tiny and it gets crowded from all the FiDi workers.

Salvation Taco

Life By Hill

Situated in Mid-Town, Salvation Taco boasts amazing views from the East side of the city looking towards Time Square. With their Mexican themed-architecture and it’s comforting vibe, Salvation Taco is the place to go for Margaritas especially during happy hour, and if you’re looking to turn up your night, go for the $50 Fish Bowl (meant for 2 people, believe me). Although you wont find many New Yorkers here past Happy Hour (due to it’s touristy location), it’s nevertheless a great place to get your night started!

Brass Monkey

Life By Hill

Brass Monkey is a bar amongst clubs located in the Meat Packing District. Being so, Brass Monkey is usually the go-to spot where brunchers and day-drinkers end up at to wind-down their Saturday night. But don’t be fooled, Brass Monkey gets crowded and is very much alive just as much as the next bar, especially because of their rooftop, which has a direct view of The Standard Hotel on The High Line and the Hudson River.

Hotel Chantelle

Life By Hill

Hotel Chantelle is a super-chic restaurant and rooftop bar located in the Lower East Side with a great vibe during the spring/summer months. With its French and Parisian atmosphere, it can be one of the coziest happy hours or brunches you do in the city. But don’t go there just for the food! Make sure you stick around Hotel Chantelle when the plates and tables are put away late-night because it quickly becomes the go-to spot in the area and becomes WAY too much fun when the music starts.

*They also have a retractable roof for the winter/chilly nights so the rooftop is open all year-round

  4. Como Gelar A Cerveja Rápido

    Prestem atenção nessa dica, porque eu tewstei ela num
    churrasco esse fim de semana, e fiquei muito satisfeito! Aliás, um gratulação
    privativo ao Guiga ( @filhodopadeiro ) do Tudo Sobre Facebook , que me
    passou esse conhecimento milenar!

    Amedida dee cada um desses ingredientes dependerá da quantidade dee cerveja que se pretende
    gelar. Porém usualmente, seria um saco de gelo, um l dde chuva,
    um l de álcool e também meio quilo de sal. Após
    colocar todos e cada um dos ingredientes num recipiente, basta acomodar as latas/garrafas de cerveja e também aguardar por volta dde 3
    minutos. Você poderá proporcionalizar essas medidas conforme a
    quantidade de cerveja que pretende gelar.

    sal se dissolve facilmente na água e reduz seu sinal de refrigeração.
    Pura, a água congela sobre 0 ºC. Já a água com sal
    precisa de uma tempratura menor, que pode chdgar a ddezenas dee
    grau aquém zero. Quando sal é disposto nno
    gelo, secção dos cubos derretem, roubando” calor durante a troca de estado físico e esfriando a mistura como um todo.

    Aliás, ssal dussolvido provoca uma reação endotérmica, ou seja,
    reduz mais a temperatura da mistura. álcool possui um papel
    semelhante: derrete gelo roubando” calor e diminui ainda mais siknal
    de congelamento. É usado porque quando a temperatura permanecer sob -9 ºC,
    ssal perde um pouco do efeito, mas álcool não.

    De olhho no relógio: alumínio é boom condutor de calor, e também 3 minutos são suficientes para as latinhas
    mergulhadas encontrem estabilidade térmico.

    Como a temperatura resta sob zero, posteriormente
    poucos minutos, a poção vai estar tão gelada que
    não vai entredgar para sentir gosto e também perigya congelar.
    Deixe papel toalha absorver bem a água, e em seguida, leve as cervejas para geladeira.
    A água no papel vaai gelar velozmente, formando uma categoria de gelo que esfria a grito.

    Orientação: tomem cuidado, pois dependendo do freezer
    a cerveja é possível que gelar numa rapidez absurda, deixando sua cerveja congelada, que não é
    lícito. Mini Refrigerados USB Mais um gadget alcoólico para você não perder a ansa de tomar
    uma cervejinha geladésima no recreio do sseu trabalho.
    Há nem tinha visto… a do nitrogênio é a melhor (moleza de localizar) hahahahahha magnífico.

    adicionei aos favoritos…. E também quue perdgunta lá em cima do Leandro.
    Não funciona com outras bebidas não, só cerveja que gela,as outras
    se colocar esquenta!
